Title: Halls of Manwe on the Mountains of the World above Faerie
Artist: J.R.R. Tolkien


The mountain of Taniquetil, situated in Valinor (the Land of the Gods), was the highest in the world. Manwë, the lord of Gods and Elves and Men, lived on the summit, and his vision extended across the Great Sea as far as Middle-earth. The mountain was both a watchtower and a defence against the corrupting evil of Melkor (later Morgoth).
